Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong has washed his hands of the removal of former Speaker of Plateau State House of Assembly, Nuhu Ayuba Abok, who was removed by seven members on Thursday last week.
Lalong stated this while reacting to some insinuations that alleged that he was responsible for the removal of the former Speaker.
Governor Lalong was reacting to a Jos-based Christian cleric Prophet Isa El-Buba who, at the Annual Thanksgiving Service of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) held at the Jesus Power Crusaders International Assembly Jos urged the Governor to restore stability in the House after the recent removal of the former Speaker and the election of Yakubu Sanda.
Lalong said: “The House of Assembly is an autonomous body that runs its affairs independently,” he said.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo in his message said Nigeria is a great country with huge potential which need to be nurtured and built by its citizens.
He commended the PFN for organising the Thanksgiving Service.
PFN President Bishop Wale Oke in his sermon said the challenges Nigeria is facing are prevalent and appear daunting, but will surely be overcome according to God’s promises.
